With all the Android devices coming out in bigger forms and display sizes, one can’t help to use it as an e-book reader. Tablets are a good candidate as well as phones with 4-inch screens and up.
There are only a few free e-book reader options in the Android market as of now. The two most popular apps are Kobo and Aldiko and some manufacturers already include them into their device.
Between the two, I would choose Aldiko because you can import your collection of e-books provided they’re in .EPUB format. I don’t have a problem with that because I use Calibre as my e-book organizer which has a built-in conversion tool for almost all type of e-book formats.
Here’s how you can import and read e-books on your Android device.
1. First thing you need to do is transfer your e-books (.epub) to your SD card. I used Dropbox since I can’t find my USB cable anywhere. If you don’t know where to get e-books, mIRC is always a good source.
2. Now launch Aldiko (download from Android Market for free) and press the Home icon on the upper left.
3. Select SD card
4. Select the e-book you wish to import and choose Import to Aldiko.
5. That’s it. Just wait for a few seconds for Aldiko to finish importing.
There you have it. You can now see your book on your shelf ready for reading. Sweet and easy!
